COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pipeworks Flower Child is the groovy, free-spirited sister to the previous generations of berliner beauties. Naked as the day she was born, this free loving girl is pure and unadultered. Take a taste and she’ll drop a tantalizingly tart acidity beside a refreshing wheat base. Simple yet so complex, this righteous girl promises a peak experience. Peace, love and Berliner Weisse. Can you dig it?

750 ml bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch # 74. A: Pours a very hazy light straw color with a fluffy white head forming on the pour. it recedes quickly to a thin, wispy film that leaves some sticky lace down the glass. S: Mild lactic acidity up front with a light, refreshing tart lemon aspect to it. T: Lemon grass, light lactic acidity. Mild cracker malt sweetness on the finish. A little mineral like middle to it as well. Sweet cracked wheat mixing with a drying lemon rind with a hint of champagne-like grape skin. M: Light bodied with a brisk drying finish and a mild acidic tartness. Lively carbonation as well. High drinkability. O: An enjoyable Berliner. I must say that I enjoy the fruited Berliner’s from PW more, but this was a great take on the style and very true. Extremely easy drinking and I’d love for a re-brew in the summer months to enjoy on a 90 degree Chicago day. Serving type: bottle

Bomber, courtesy of Archer Liquours , Chicao, pours an unfiltered light grapefruit color with no head. Nose is sour and citrusy and has a somewhat rank nose. Taste is sweet and fruity, balanced with sourness. Finish is citrusy and bitter, not my favorite style but drinkable. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a hazy light pale yellow while unfiltered with a white head and aroma of wheat fruit. Taste is light, of wheat, fruit and tart notes with hops and malt leading to a slight sour finish. Light and nice for the style

Bacterial (1202) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Slightly hazy pour then VERY hazy / chunky pour in the last 1/5 of the 750 mL bottle. I mean big chunks. Never seen giant white chunks in beer before. Taste and nose is really nice, but god damn - the chunks! Soft citrus, nice tartness.

weihenweizen (1507) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle batch #99 poured into a trappist glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is off vegetable tartness, light body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is acidic tartness, wheat base, and off flavors. The offness is a big negative.

Bottle. Hazy yellow pour. Light aroma, white wine, honey, light cheesy notes. Quite punchy powerful honey malt sweetness, light lactic sourness, very tart. Palate is light, low carb, not particularly dry. Decent.

mathieuc (985) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Pours a really pale "white" and cloudy. Aroma is vegetal a little (?!) but also contains nice vinous and honey-ish notes. Taste is sour, really sour but finishes clean. Lemonade impressions throughout. Body is really light and it feels watery, a bit of a letdown. Other than that it was fun but a bit "one note".

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Extra from Mark, thanks! Hazy pale yellow with a small persistent white head and light lacing. Aroma is of wheat, honey, cheesy/yogurt notes and floral presence. Taste is moderately sweet with honey, yogurt, acidity from wheat and floral notes. Light body, almost watery. Low carbonation. Good, gently tart, cheesy, refreshing and drinkable Berliner Weisse. Interesting "honey" touch.

Bottle 750ml. Pours very clear whitish with a quite low head (white). Aroma is of fruits, rusticity, yogurt. Taste is of fruits, honey, fair acidity, wine. Palate: Light body. Nearly watery. "Dry" finish. Overall: Good, light, refreshing.

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2013
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a spare white head. Aroma of cheesy popcorn, horse blanket, and earth. Flavor of sulfur, stale burnt popcorn, leather, and cardboard. Image a Christmas popcorn tin that has sat for months and then for some reason you decide to heat that popcorn up in the microwave until it smolders and eat it. This beer.
